All over the country young men and women are completing courses of study in our schools and colleges and are stepping out to meet the demands of real life. To some it is a step in the dark: to others it is such a long step that some kind of a bridge has to be supplied. You young men and Women who are completing your courses at Westinghouse Tech have no problem of adjusting yourselves to new conditions. You have earned your Way While you have been developing your knowledge and personality as a preparation for greater responsibilities. You have been learning to Walk by Walk- ing: learning to Work by Working: learning to think by thinking: and learning to live by living. . . At this time you are pausing for a little While on your journey of life to receive a friendly pat on the back for Work Well done in the past and a Word of encouragement for the future. May you live long to apply the principles which you have learned at Westinghouse Tech and to enjoy the friends you have made. CARL S.

The enrollment at XYestinghouse Tech for the fall term of l922 was one of the largest the school had ever had. XYC were there a hundred and some odd strong. ln fact, the enrollment for theffresh- man class was so large that it had to be split up into three or four sections. Even so some of them had to repose on radiators and windowsills until the question of room assignment could be settled. Vile were backward as freshies usually are, and gasped in awe upon passing upper classmen. VVe did not become a shining star during that eventful freshman year but rather limited our ei- forts to becoming acquainted with the faculty or that part of the faculty attached to the freshman class, and concentrated the remaining part of our efforts upon study. It was a mighty hard year and one which tried the mettle of each and every member of the class. Many stood the test and re- joiced at the end of the spring term of l923 when informed that they were eligible for membership in the sophomore class. Gladly did we welcome that information. By this time we became accustomed to the ways of the school and, since we were so completely oc- cupied in getting acquainted during the freshman year, decided to step out, discontinue our freshman pranks and customs, become dignified as all upper classmen should, and show the other students of Westinghotise Tech that we were present. XVe were able to place our representatives on the va- rious athletic teams. By hard work and the burn- ing of much midnight oil, we were able to devote much time to school activities. Thus we progressed step by step, becoming more enthusiastic as time rolled by, until we must needs have a hand in all activities. During this period, one event which will be re- corded in the annals of the school was the organi- zation of the Forum. A small number of men, members of the sophomore class of economics, con- ceived the idea of instituting a public speaking course. This could not well be added to the al- ready crowded curriculum and. not to be daunted. they decided lu use the unused assembly hall after the usual recitation period. Each Friday night this small band of men assembled in said assembly hall and under the direction of one of the faculty who held foremost in his thoughts the welfare of the school and the students of the school, worked out a plan whereby their ambitions could be realized. The Forum has grown consistently until at the present time the membership is quite large. The desire to be a part of the school, to work for the good of all rather than self. became more manifest as time passed bv, until during the junior year most every member of the class was connected in some way with school activities. The highest and next highest honor which any student of Tech can obtain were bestowed upon members of the junior class of '24-'25 Those honors being: Presi- ilent and Vice President of the Students Associa- tion and which offices were held bv Mr. Hill and Wir. Scherm respectively. The final step but one was taken in the fall of 1925 when we occupied the chairs left vacant by the graduating class of 25. XYe believe that we have done our duty to ourselves and to our school. Many have fallen by the way until only 41 mem- bers remain of the almost 200 who enrolled on that clear September night so long ago. Vile now come to the end of our senior year. As a last remark we wish to express our thanks to the directors and management for the wonderful school they offer and to express to them our appre- ciation of the opportunity they offer that we may learn, at a reasonable rate, while we also earn. To the faculty, we express in concert, our thanks for your untiring efforts and express our apprecia- tion of the attitude you have taken in things we so much wished to know. And to Vilestinghouse Tech, we bid a fond adieu. VVe leave you in name only. YVe remain with you and for you, though by great space we may be parted, ' "Years may dim our recollection. Time its change may bring, Still thy name in fond affection Evermore we sing." F. M. PURDY '26 VV. D. XVALTERS '26 A, M.

'-Lrdhwui-A., JV THE TECH OWL 25 Last Will and Testament Henry Zeloyle '26 XfVe,, the members of the graduating class of XVCSt1Hgl'lOLlS6 Technical Night School, located in the borough of Turtle Creek, County of Allegheny, State of Pennsylvania, being of exceedingly sound minds, do hereby make, publish and declare, this, our last will and testament, on the iirst day of June, in the year of our Lord 1926, hereby revok- ing all wills and testaments previously made by us. To our worthy Directors, Management, and Fac- ulty, our sincere appreciation for the good work and effort they have put forth, to put us over the high spots. May they succeed with their everlasting ef- forts to develop the leadership in the succeeding classes which they bestowed upon us. To the industrious class of 1927, the Steam Lab- oratory, :with its water knocks, lapping :steam valves, and its adiabatic expansion. The Electrical Laboratory with its burned out rheostats, lagging power factors, short circuit stretchers, and its har- monic effects on sine waves. To the ambitious class of 1928, the Chemical Laboratory with its burned out crucibles, latent heat of fusion, and the freezing and melting point of gold. To the Freshman we leave the advice, as no questions of the upper classmen, for he who asks questions shall receive "wrong information."

' 26 THE TECH OWL ' Accounting Class Prophecy Marion -I. Bostaph A strange thing happened to me a short time ago, about which I shall relate at length, since it has a peculiar significance to all in our class at this time. I found myself standing on the top-most peak of Oak Hill, gazing ahstractly up and down the great IVestinghouse Valley. How I got there, or why I was there, I am at a loss to answer, but some- thing back in the recesses of my mind unconscious- ly made me feel as though I should have been there. Presently, I became aware of someone ap- proaching where I stood and I glanced up inquir- ingly. I can't, even now, explain why it didn't surprise me when I saw standing before me, in Hesh and blood, a dark-skinned stranger, his long patriarchal beard fiowing in the wind, his head swathed in a gorgeous turban, and his person robed in a flashing, jewel-beclecked tunic, after the man- ner of the East. I-Ie bowed politely and spoke "Friend, I see that thou hast honored our tryst, follow me and I shall reveal that which I have promised." Without a word, full of apprehension and antici- pation, I followed. Up and up, higher and higher, we climbed until only the vast, rolling oceans of billowy fog and smoke were visible beneath and the wide, open, illimitable expanse of clear heaven above, I seemed to react immediately in sympathy with the majestic spectacle of infinity presented to my view, and a tranquility of mind, such as I had never known, stole over me, while a broad, deep understanding permeated my brain. Under the subtle enchantment, all finite things-creation, life. and all the mysteries of the world seemed to me to have been resolved into a few, simple, readily com- prehendable elements. My mystic guide. bending down beside me. de- scribed a circle with white chalk around my feet, cautioned in that equally mvstic voice "Move not without, or thy wish of heholding the future of your classmates may remain unfulfilled." Being accustomed by this time to the wondrous happenings, I was not abashed in the least when in an instant some hidden power cast creation into cosmic blackness. Vifhether this condition existed only in my mind, I cannot say, But let us go on. A moment later, a circle of dazzling light ap- peared before me about an arm's length away, con- taining a chaos of moving shadows, which grad- ually took on form, and I found myself looking into a room! A soft, mellow, light, filtering into the room, through several marvelous windows of classic design revealed to my delighted gaze a vel- vet carpeted, rich mahogany, shining brass, equip- ped business office, such as only the mightiest men of finance could afford. A door opened, and two figures entered, one was short, dumpy and bald, while the other was tall, white-haired, and well groomed. Both had an unmistakable air of dis- tinction. After seating themselves into two beau- tifully carved chairs, I heard the taller state with a decisive blow of his fist on the desk, "lVIr. Mor- gan, you will accept my proposition of re-organi- zation by tomorrow noon, or I shall withdraw my support, which, as you are well aware, will throw you into inevitable bankruptcy! Good day l" I-Ie turned around-Great Guns!-It was Paul Mere- dith! ' scene began to blur, and when it cleared I looked into another page from the future. The again, Mows of sweet smelling hay stood on either side, while shafts of sunlight pierced the crevices be- the shrinking clapboards and rested on the tween roughened fioor of a barn. In the foreground a figure, with his back turned and suspenders show- ing, was squatting on a three legged stool, con- tentedly milking a lazy looking cow, while behind him a calf, unmolested, licked the filler off his shapeless straw hat. VVhen he turned and called "Mirandie" I recognized with a smile my old friend, Bob Cunningham, the sheik. The scene, blurring, cleared quickly and I saw thousands of white clothed people waving hats and cheering with gusto a man carried aloft in apparent triumph by several broad shouldered men, while the air rang "Vive! Vive Diaz, the Mussolini of Venezuela!" Then the vision disappeared. Then I heard sweet organ music, a picture was flashed before me, and I knew I was in a movie theater. The picture evidently was nearing its close-when I saw Harold Dare fknown to us an- cients as .Iordanl execute artistically, in a soul in- spiring fadeout. a fervent osculation. reenforced by H strove half nelson on the sweet ingenue, the famous Colleen Cutie: then a quick "Firiis." My next vision was in the form of a copy of the pink "Police Gazette," on the very first page was a faithful photo of Howard Swigart and his fifth wife. They made a fine pair! The descriptive print underneath them informed me that he was being sued hy wives number one and four respectively for non-payment of alimony, while the second son of his third wife, after assaulting the ninth son of his second wife with a feather duster, was petition- ing him for bail to release him from the Turtle Creek Irloosegow.

Strommen busily tying flour sacks in a grain elevator back in Minnesota to the tune of "My Yonnie Yonsonf' ' Just in front of the main entrance J. Lloyd's Modlste de Paree I noticed stolid-faced F. Taylor standing in brass buttons and long military coat. I thought he was a distinguished general or some- thing until I saw him open a couple of cab doors. I felt a pair of radio phones on my ears and "got in" just in time to hear "This is Morri, of the sta- tionuJQZP at Shapiro's Printe Shoppe, announcg mg. Again I saw thousands of upturned, eager, faces around me, then my eye fell on a boxing ring, in which the announcer-why, if it wasn't Cotton- informing the house that the world's championship was to be decided there in a few moments by two of the bitterest rivals the world has ever seen, and who did I see slip up to the scratch but Ed Fox and Lee Schneider! A glance at the men at the ringside showed a large heavy set man smoking a very black cigar enjoying the patronage of those around him. Upon closer scrutiny, I recognized jacobs whovwas evi- dently the promoter of the great affair. The scene shifted and behold I saw the interior of a beautiful office. Gazing out of the window I could see the National Capitol in the foreground and knew it was in Washington, D. C. At a desk sat a man with graying hair and the sign on his desk showed him to be Mr. Beck, Secretary of the Treas- ury. The scene faded and the darkness returned. At last I was to enjoy a glimpse of my own fu- ture! In my eagerness, I overstepped the line and instantly found myself back in the little class room at the M. O. Bldg., Mr. Rush orating lucidly on the primary subrogation of Capitalization and its attempted entry in the Accounts Accountable Ac- count as an inexcusable iuxtaposition of incongru- ous fol-de-rol. Accounting ' 1926 ACCOUNTING CLASS JOURNAL AND DETAILS THEREOF In the fall of 1923 there was enrolled in the Ac- counting Department the largest class in the his- tory of the Department, some fifty fellows pro- fessing an interest in the science of debits and credits. At the spring enrollment seventeen more were interested enoughto enroll for a course of this fascinating UD study. It is to be regretted that by the beginning of the fall term of 1924, of the sixty-seven starting the course only twenty- odd returned, the transfer to other schools or fields of activity having been the cause of the non-return. At that time, the Accounting Department had no representation on the Owl Staff and the only time we heard from the rest of the school was at election time or when any tickets were to be dis- posed of. We are pleased to report that this con- dition no longer exists as we have three members on the Owl staff and are actively interested in all school activities. In our second year we were introduced to the chain problems and what a struggle we had with them. Law presented its trials but particularly so with the Sales Act. At the beginning of this term, A. K. Strommen, a member of this class, was appointed Accounting Department Editor of the Tech Owl. A short time later it was discovered that Mr. Bostaph was an artist and with one or two exceptions, all of the Owl Covers since that time have been created by him. At the spring assembly six members of'th1s department were presented awards for participation in athletics and Owl activities. wrt .. mf.i.s.uzaaaaa.aL t Our Senior year has been a very busy one indeed. In the fall term, we explored the mysteries of Cost Accounting. A healthy chain problem kept up the interest and afforded a splendid opportunity to put to use the theory we were learning. Then we had graphs. Some one surely had an active mind to invent so many kinds of them. We must admit that we had some great time at class by trying to convince the instructor that the graphs turned in by us were all that was desired. Law proved very interesting as we studied the pitfalls that may be- fall one not familiar with the proper ways of leas- ing or renting property or mortgaging it. Also what happens when an estate is settled. For the first time, Scholarships were available for this de- partment and at the Spring General Assembly, five of them were presented. Of this number, two were given to members of this class. At this time also the Alumni Association voted to admit mem- bers of this Department. This helps to give a greater degree of equality than had hitherto been given and we are proud to say that it was through the efforts of some of the members of this class that this has been brought about. Our school days at Tech are now over and we are prepared to burst forth on the unsuspecting world with all the brilliance of a shooting star. It is our hope that the first foundation we have acquired will be the start of a career for each of us that will rellect credit on the school and our- selves. We will miss Tech. and we hope that we will be kindly remembered by Tech during the years to come P. F. Meredith. 23 THE TECH OWL Women's Department COMMERCIAL CLASS HISTORY Commencement! At last the goal has been at- tained for which we have struggled so hard during the past three Years. Xie did not think when we enrolled at the beginning of that time, that we should ever reach that Mecca looked toward to by students all over the world4Graduation Time. The time is really here, and at last we can look back with a laugh and a smile upon our former wor- ries and enjoy to the fullest extent the success that is ours. After the first semester we became more in- terested in our class sessions and our studies. Shorthand seemed to be a difiicult task, when we attempted to solve its mysterious signs, but we soon realized that it could only be mastered by hard work. . "Learn while you Earn" is the slogan of lifest- inghouse Tech. and no one can realize what it really means until they have tried it out by going to school three nights a week, and keeping before them all of the time that other well known maxim "Duty before Pleasure." It is a hard thing to do, but when it is almost over we find that we have not had a hard time after all. for we have had the opportunity to form new friendships and to do new things. Vile do not realize until our last terms at school all that the patient instruction on the part of our faculty has meant to us. The wonderful times we have enjoyed at VVest Tech! The dances. the basketball games, with the cheering fellow students. It is only by partici- pation in all the school activities that we get the real school spirit and the fellowship that comes by contact with new friends and old. The party held at the Community House in Ard- more at the beginning of this year was a big suc- cess. Everyone had a good time, dancing and eating and the prizes caused much merriment. The Valentine Dance at the Masonic Temple was an- other success. The free event at the Cafeteria will be another pleasing memory of the past year. The Irwin Male Chorus presented by the Senior Class was enjoyed by everyone. Last but not least the Banquet on Nay Sth, at the Morrowheld llotel, was a fitting climax to a year of interesting events. Our class election for the last semester was as follows: President, Dorothy Allardg Secretary and Treasurer, Nettie Lane: Owl Reporter. Anna Lauth. The reporter's job seems to be the hardest one of all, for it certainly takes some effort to get the girls to make a write-up for the Owl. Ask anyone that has been a reporter and they will tell you the same story. Now that we have come to the parting of the ways, we will often think of the good time had at Vllestinghouse Tech. IVe will cherish the mem- ories of the friendships formed in our school, and we want' to thank our instructors for their kind- ness and patience with us during the time we have spent at 'XVest Tech. Y COMPTOMETER CLASS HISTORY September found quite a few ambitious girls wanting to increase their knowledge. After en- rollment the Comptometer Class was composed of about thirty girls. The activities of the Night School were attended by the girls and all have reported that they have had an enjoyable year. Basketball season opened and the call came for candidates for the squad. After the season we found three of our class on the squad. Activities have not taken all of our time. School work has been going on just as usual. TWG find several of our girls have been awarded scholarships for their work. The last activity which we will attend will be the Banquet. Ilfe all intend to be there and enjoy our last event as Students, ' All year our aim has been to help Tech orocfl-Q55 and to graduate. Now it is time for us to reiceive our diplomas and say goodbye.

To acquire a workable knowledge of the English language, to learn something of the ideas and ideals of America, to nt themselves so that they may by honest work, be able to enjoy life according to the American standard of living, and to become worthy citizens of a great nation 5-such are the aims and ambitions of these earnest students who each -year are graduated from our Foreign De- partment. Emil Concelio came to America at the age of twenty and landed in New York harbor on July 26, 1922. He first worked for a Steel Company in Clairton, Pa. He came to the Westinghouse Air Brake Company some time later and started in the Foreign Department in the Fall term of this year. His education in Italy consisted of three years of high school. Emil took out his "first papers" shortly after arriving here and will be getting his final papers next year. Richard Epple was born in Ditzingen, Germany, in 1900. He had had several years of public school and over three years in the machinist's school be- fore coming to America in january 1925. His first job was that of shaper operator for the Oliver Iron and Steel Company, Pittsburgh, but he is now employed as a tool designer in Section K-80. Richard started in the Foreign Department in of this year and has been able to com- February l . plete the work of the course in one term. He is of his class and as such, has the honor its representative at the Annual Com- mencement Exercises. ' , Cesario Martinez is one of our Latin friends. He was in Mexico City, Mexico, in the Year 1900 and Came to the United States via thellzaredo Border in April, 1924. His first job .was in a foundry in Chicago, but he came to Pittsburgh about one year ago and is now working for the Universal Portland Cement Company-U , Cesario's thorough education. in the French Com- ial High School at Mexico City has helped silica great deal in mastering the English lan- guage I President of being Ohh Malanck was born in Poland in 1908.

He is employed as a machine operator for the Pittsburgh Meter Company. Everything consid- ered, there is probably no one who has made greater progress in his school work -during the last term than has our hard working john. Nils H. Norris comes from Vestnes, Norway. He landed at Boston, Mass. in May 1923 at the age of twenty-five years. His first job was with the Edgar Thompson Steel Works, where he has advanced himself by diligent effort to the position of machine operator. 1. While his education in the old country was ob- tained in the grammar school he has worked very hard since coming to the Foreign Department last November and is now one of our best students. Nils has his first papers and is anxiously wait- ing for the time when he will become a full-fledged citizen of the U.S.A. Emery Sarkany comes to us -from Budapest, Hungary, where he was born in 1902. His educa- tion in .Hungary was quite varied, he having had five years in the public schools, three years in high school and four years in the machinist trade. He landed in America in 1922 and found work among his fellow country-men in the coal mines of West Virginia. Coal mining, however, was not the kind of work he had planned to do and he soon began to seek work with promise of a better future, and so in 1924, against the advice and amidst the jeers of his co-workers, he started for Pittsburgh where he secured the position he now holds-that of tool maker for the Westinghouse Company in See- tion W-52. Emery started in the Foreign Department in September, 1924, and has kept consistently at it until he now graduates with honors. He also has his "first" papers. Herbert Tix landed in New York on Independence Day, 1922, from Berlin, Germany. His education consisted of public school, three years in a tech- nical night school and four years as a mechanic. His first job was that of machinist for an Ice Ma- chine Company in Brunswick, New York, Until lately, however, he has been employed in Section Z-33 as a hot moulder on radio apparatus. He started in the Foreign Department in Novem- ber, 1923. He has "first papers" and will be able to obtain his second papers next vear. Such is the line-up of the Class of 1925-26. 34 THE TECH owL Athletics Edited by J. R. Roppel H . Notwithstanding the fact that the record of the football team was not as good as that of some, former teams, nevertheless Vllestinghouse Tech has had a very successful year in athletics. The basketball teams representing Tech more than regained the prestige which might have been lost by the football team. Football is a game that requires lots of practice, constant drilling, and con- sequently far more' time than the average Tech student has at his disposal. VVorking during the day, going to school three hours a night, three nights a week. imposes a heavy handicap on the Tech players, and they are unable to compete on an equal basis with schools that have more time to devote to the game. X The death of one of the players due to an acci- dent on the practice held, and a realization of the above factors, turned the sentiment of the school against football, and at the last joint Assembly, it was voted to drop football from the official list of Tech Sports. ' The basketball teams both had a very success- ful season, the boys winning 10 games out of 15 and the girls getting the upper hand in ll out of 14 games. Tech met teams this year that were able to present a very strong lineup, and the way they stood the test was a pleasant surprise to all. Pitt Freshies, Westinghouse Club, VVestern Penn School for the Deaf, Mansfield Works, and Irwin Tech numbered among the opponents of the Owls. l The Tech basketball teams were noted for their fine team work, and it is well nigh impossible to pick out one or two men and class them as the outstanding stars. Pendro and Cushman, at for- ward, Baker at center, and Capt. Fike and Hess at guards, all played a hne game for the boys varsity, while the Misses Broson and VVeiss, at forward, McMurdo at side center, Lawth at center, and Kardos, and Mooney at guard played an excep- tional game for the girls. Miss Money by her clever H1 guarding saved many a game for Tech. As is always the case, in sports as well as in the game of life, there are students, who as can- J didates for the teams, have given and clone their. best from the start of the season to the close, and- have failed to make their letter. Even though it ' has not been their good fortune to represent Tech against its opponents as much as they would like? H to, still they have helped to make the Westing-P4 house Tech teams, and much credit is justly theirsf This fact was brought'home in a telling manneri ,gi by the Rankin Hi game, in which the tide was 5. turned in ,favor of Tech, by one lone held goal made iii 4 by one of the reserves. Coaches Clements and Garret, Paul, and Mrs.'l 1: 2 F il in a large measure for the success of the variousv, Powers, by their excellent work, are responsible Tech teams. The basketball teams will not lose? many members, by graduation this year, so thej prospects for next year are very good. 32 An inter-class basketball league was formed last season. The Freshman I quintet carried off the honors winning 4 out of 5 games. This league -4 furnishes an excellent 'opportunity 'for students who like to get a little exercise, and many havelj N7 -E E taken advantage of it. It was a little late in start-,Q ing last season. but plans are under way to or-f ganize a league next year right at the beginning, of the season. Games of this caliber, tend tok awaken the class spirit at Tech, and class rivalry? means class interest, class interest means school- interest, school interest means VVestinghouse Tech, enthusiasm, such as has never before been in evi-Q. 4 dence at Tech.

L. McFeaters, Treasurer Mr. A. J. Scherm, Vice-President Miss Jane Hale, Secretary One of the most interesting years at lfVesting- house Technical Night School Students Associa- tion has come to a close. . During the past year several questions of vital importance were settled. The most important of which was the change in the constitution. The Accounting School has proved themselves worthy of more representation, so that now.a junior in the Accounting Department 1S permitted to run for t Association. , Heretofore there have been ten issues of the Tech O l. The first of which had to, be worked up W , during the summer vacation. This of course re- he office of Vice President of the Students sulted in a small paper due to the lack of school news.

All of these things taken to- gether worked a hardship on the members of the 1 Staff. Consequently it became necessary to O . alrier the constitution to the effect that now there - will be nine issues of the Tech Owl, each issue shall be published approximately the fifteenth of the preceding month. ' The long discussed question of football at West- inghouse Tech came to a close this year when it was decided by the majority vote of the Student Body that we should discontinue varsity football until such time as the Students see lit to have it reinstated. The present Students' Association Officers terms are about to, expire. We take this opportunity to thank all of the students, faculty and alumni for their co-operation during the past school year. Some of the questions that have confronted us were not of the most pleasant naturef But other questions which were of a likeable nature far over balanced. So that we have enjoyed our work to a great extent. We wish to extend our best wishes for a most successful administration for the olficers that will take our places, at the end of this year. H. L.

The product of a school is its alumni and the worth of the school is measured by its alumni. The pro- duct may be good only as the raw material, the incoming student, is good and as the faculty is effective in performing its function. All students who enter the doors of XVestinghouse Tech are not the best raw material upon which to work to bring forth the product we have in view. Many are merely misplaced and a training opera- tion other than ours will produce a valuable hnished product. Throughout the years of training there are numerous inspection periods, numerous tests the student must meet, and the unfit are soon eliminated. The product is variable for although the material must conform to regular standards and must meet regular tests, many variables enter into the produc- tion. Advanced preliminary training above the re- quirements, greater natural ability, clinic-rences of experiences, and a better grasping' of the opportuni- ties vary the alumni mil the school over wide limits. XYe are concerned now, however, with the faculty, those who are working with the student in the en- deavor to bring it up to the established standard ofthe course in which the student is enrolled. Upon them depends the value of the training programs of the school. Eighty-one men and women com-pose the com- plete faculty of Wfestinghouse Technical Night School at the present time. These are distributed in the various Departments as follows: Super- visory 7, Engineering' 39, junior Engineering 9. Foreign 4. Accounting 7, and WVomen's Department 15. Of this number 69 are employed in industry during' the day, while 12 are engaged in Public School work. T lvlth 3 lllalflliltb' Employed dailv in industry, our faculty members are peculiarly fitted to train the student body for industry's work. Those whose daily vocation is teaching, bring' to their night school work a wide training audiia proven ability to put the subjects across to the student. i v Opr .instructors bring to their work a yvidg train- mg 01 tw mfs College graduates or graduates of N X .x X Z THE TECH OWL 39 WOMEN'S FACULTY our own school, almost without exception. They bring a practical experience which augments their theoretical training so as to make it doubly valu- able. To their students they bring a practical view- point which, when added to the experiences of the Student on his daily job, gives a training calculated to nt the student for the work-a-day world. In 1909, Mr. R. H. lfVynne lirst began to teach in the Engineering Department. He has given con- tinuous service since that time, being now Director of Chemistry and Metallurgy. In the same year Mr, I, S, Dean began to teach and taught Electricity until a transfer to the Homewood Works of the VV. Q M. Co. compelled him to resign m January. Mr. Coler, President of the School, began to teach in 1910, he progressed to Manager, then to the Presidency. Mr. R. L. Helquist, Dire-ctor of M hine -Shop Practice, begansto teach in l9l3, ac while Mr. Mullen has taught nine, and a half years, Mr. Aungst nine years, and Mr. Schaffer eight Vearq Qeven vears is the length of service for Mr. 'Austin and Mir, Peterson. Mr. Lynn has six and one-half. while Messrs. Johnston and Leger each have put in six years. ln the Foreign Department there is one man who has taught for seven and three-quarter years, Mr. L. E. Markle. Mr. Titler, the Head of the Depart- ment has served six and one-halt years. In the VVomen's Department Miss Blanche Hol- man and Miss Bess Cooper are tied for tirst honors for length of service, with eight years each. Miss Black ranks second with seven years, while Miss Thompson comes next with tive years to her credit. Thus seventeen instructors who are now teaching have served together 14921 years. The total service years of our present staff of 32 Cincluding super- visoryj is 274W years, or an average of 3.38 years per instructor. To the devotion of these instructors our students owe an inestimable debt. Their years of service are given primarily because of a love for the work. They give the hours after their day's work because they Want to have a part in training young men and women for industry's work. They of course, are compensated,-to a small extent in money, but to a greater extent in personal development and in a feeling of satisfaction that they are helping the student to progress.

Several, how- ever, first prepared themselves for higher engineer- ing work by entering the junior Engineering De- partment ol XY. T. N. S. The men coming from that Department have shown themselves well pre- pared in the fundamentals of mathematics, which after all is the basis of all engineering work, and have proven themselves well fitted to continue the study of the engineering profession The members ol the class come from all points of the compass. Missouri claims at least two, Califm-H13 Ugg, tliltirzitlo one, XVashington two, New York one, Ohio three, Minnesota one, Virginia one and Pennsylvania the remainder The class has been especially well represented in activities. Several men gave good accounts of themselves in football and basketball, while others have participated in such activities as the Forum, the Debating team, and the newly organized Ly- ceum Club, as well as the Owl Staff and Owl Club, The class also has the honor of producing next year's Student Association Vice President in the person of Mr. Freiner. The present Soph H class is the tirst to carry the new curriculum which has raised the scholastic standing of Wiestinghouse Tech to a new plane. XYith the introduction of standard college texts used in many leading universities and colleges of the country, and with the further advantage of practical instructors who apply their knowledge in the electrical industry every day and who are able to separate the worth while practical from the mere theoretical and impractical, the electrical en- gineering course at NYestinghouse Tech has be- second to none. This advanced course has COINS been carried successfully, however, bv most of those who began with ns. lt has taken some bit- terly intensive work but everv man feels it worth while.

The First part of our book tells of our assign- ments in the first classes, meeting our instructors, and classmates who are to be with us through this, our first, semesterg also. the impressions of the subjects we took. The Presidents ol our classes were ll. XY. Smith and Nr. Reed in Fresh l, and Mr. l,eech and Mr. Avery in Fresh II. These men very ably managed our class through the year. These somber proceedings were punctuated by numerous events including the free event, Tech dances and football games, the Class smoker and many humorous events. Amid the finals we realized more and more that we were becoming the men of today, and not one among us will forget that semester as Fresh I, On -lanuary 27, 1926 we again enrolled, but this time it lacked the strangeness and confusion be- cause we knew what to expect, XVe were glad to get back to our work and, with a seriousness born out of the responsibilities of the lirst semester, we worked through the second, Again the seasons various events kept up our SI'JlTll5, Thus the semester drew to a close.

Early last September, we wended our way once more to this hall of learning, memories of which will linger in our minds for many years to come. TVe were seniors, and this was to be our last year in the Junior Engineering Department. Wfe found that many of our old classmates were missing, and new faces had taken their places. Wfe were surprised to note the territory represented in our school. Naturally, the majority of those in our room are from the good state of Pennsylvania, Qhio, XVest Virginia and Montana are also represented in our midst. XVe have had one accident and some sickness, but none of these have deterred us from reaching the goal we set at the beginning of the year.

Al- though we have made a few sacrifices thus far to obtain our aim, they have not been in vain. Our class opened with an enrollment of twenty-nine pupils. Nine have dropped out leaving us with twenty to close this semester and all hope to be right back again next year. Our class boasts of having' a pupil from Honolulu also one from the state of Indiana. Mr. Mock and Mr. Mahon re- spectively.

Without stressing the smoke. shrapnel and Red Cross, there was a stir within the last year, which resulted in the School of Accounting being eligible for a Vice Presidential candidate.

But the remaining ones went forward, and came through with Hying colors, with the help of our beloved teacher, Miss McCullough.

Q1 THE TECH OWL SEWING CLASS SEWING lt is almost the end of the term which has been very pleasant and interesting. lt is now getting very late and we still have a full class, but we owe it all to our teachers-Miss Black, Miss Thompson and Mrs. Russell, who have worked with ns and helped us so much, and we extend to them our most hearty thanks and hope we may all be able to be with them for the next term, ready to work much harder than before. The time has gone so fast that it all seems a dream that our school closes on the 23th of May. We as a class, thank our teachers lor the kind attention they gave us, and hope we shall all be with them again next year with a better working will than ever before. The sewing class was well represented in Student Activities this year by Miss Alice Wleiss. Foot ball has lost out in the school, but it will give more time to prepare for the Basketball Sea- sons. All the girls are enthusiastic over basketball and are more than willing to help put it across. VVe are going to leave you for the summer, but after our fingers are healed from where we stuck them with pins and needles we will be back to show the nice coat of tan we earned during vacation. N ! S THE TECH OWL 53 Alumnae WELCOME CLASS '26 As this issue of the "Owl" will be given the Graduates on Commencement night, we want to be among the first to congratulate you on having completed have at last reached the "goal" towards which you have 'been striving the last three years. It is a long hard tight, but once won you have the satis- your school work so successfully. You faction of knowing it was worth while and you have something no one can take from you. We, the members of the Alumnae Association, extend a hearty invitation and hope to have you join the Alumnae Association. Remember, from tonight on you are one of us and you should be interested in the affairs of the Association. SCHOLARSHIPS lt aifords the Alumnae Association great pleas- ure to be able to report that the following girls won the Scholarships for the fall term of 1925: E. M. HERR SCHOLARSHIPS: Filomena Di- muzio, Agnes O'Brien, and Helen Kurtz. ALUMNAE SCHOLARSHIP: Mary Wojciech- XVe wish to congratulate the recipients and are sure they are worthy of these Scholarships as they have worked hard, which has been proven by the excellent progress vtheyllhave Vmade. The girls should all work hard and continue to put forth a special effort to obtain the Scholarships. We also wish to thank' the donors for their generosity in making these Scholarships possible. ELECTION OF OFFICERS owski. The first part of june a business meeting will be held, at which time we will have CICCUOU Of Qfiicers for the next year. As the success of the Association depends largely upon its Officers, we should all be thinking about it and have some sug- gestions ready for the meeting, whenever it is held.

This applies particularly to the president. Not because of what he has done, but on account of the splendid co-operation he has received from the elected offi- cgrs, appointed committees and the members. l, therefore, feel proud of the opportunity to pass along the credit of our accomplishments to the individuals that just deserve it. To Vice President R. S. Marthens, Secretary I. H. Lewis and Treasurer VV. E. Fry, words cannot express my appreciation of their valuable services to the Association. They carried out the respon- sibility of their offices. Messrs. L. W. Gardner, j. C. McBride and E. M. Kostic were responsible for the Social and En- tertainment program. Mr. Kostic put across one of the greatest affairs ever attempted by the As- sociation. This was the Alumni play which ran for two nights at Union High. , Past President W. V. Foust, '14, while serving as Chairman of the Constitution and By-Laws Com- mittee carried out the issues of the administration and when they were presented for approval all Dick amendments were accepted without one dissenting vote. The Educational Committee under Mr. R. R. Snyder, '21, and the Scholarship Committee under Mr. T. A. Strommen, '25, performed to perfection without any extra assistance from the officers. The attitude and spirit of the members has been such as to make one who has served them regret that the year has expired. The Constitution has been amended to provide for the elegibility of the Accountancy Graduates. Also a revised method of electing officers. The membership has reached a new high level. The financial condition of the'Association, as it will be turned over to our successors, is one of the chief reasons of our feeling proud. To our successors-we envy you. You are as- suming leadership in one of the finest organizations in existence. An organization that, if you permit the members to do their part, will bring you to the point one year hence when you will say with us-YVe feel proud of having had the opportunity of serving in an official capacity in the Alumni As- sociation of the Westinghouse Technical Night School-It has been good for us. OUR OFFICERS The Alumni Association is just completing a year of much activity. The officers and committee members have played an important part in making it a successful one. PRESIDENT: The retiring President, C. B. Dick, '23, is winding up quite an extensive West- inghouse Tech career. VVhile in school he was president of Student's Association, business man- ager of Tech Owl, served as chairman of prac- tically every committee, twice Class reporter and six times Class president, including his graduating class of 1923. Since graduating he has served one year as Alumni Secretary, two years Alumni Edi- tor, two years on Athletic Council and last june was unanimously elected to the high office of Presi- dent. This record speaks for itself. VICE PRESIDENT: Richard S. Marthens, '17, to do things in a big way, even though he is small in stature, "Dick" has proven an able assistant to President Dick. In spite of all his greatness he possesses one weakness-that is automobile speed- ing. SECRETARY: It was found necessary to im- port a Secretary from the state of Colorado. A better one than I. H. Lewis, '25, could not be found if we had searched the four corners of the earth. Mr. Lewis in addition to keeping records straight has served as Chairman of the Publicity Commit- tee. He was president of the Graduating Class of 1925. TREASURER: A native of Ohio proved an ex- cellent watch dog of the Alumni pocket book. W. E. Fry, '22, will put his books up to the Auditing Committee any time. As Chairman of the Ticket Committee during the last year he broke all pre- vious records. REPRESENTING TRUSTEE: The name of F. G. Kottmann, '10, need no further introduction to the followers of Vlfestinghouse Tech. I-Ie has always been an active member of the Alumni and is completing his second term as Trustee. In a general way it may be interesting to know that none of the officers were born in the Pitts- burgh District. lncidentally they are all with the W. S. Sz M. Co., at East Pittsburgh at present with the following positions: Dick, Foreman of Inspec tors, Marthens, Power Engineerg Lewis Industrial Salesman, Fry, Renewal Parts Engineer and Kott man, Supervisor of Commercial Training, Ednca cational Department. 7 4' l TTT ' 5' . x I . QI? ami EQ r THE TECH OWL - LL T- E Who is Who in Alumni BILL JASPERT '17 . It was with real pleasure that we read the lol- lowing announcement from VVinter, Brown and Critchlow, one of .Pittsburgh's prominent legal firms: , "We now have associated with us in tice of patent, trade-mark and unfair tion causes WILLIAM B. JASPERT a member of the bar of the Supreme Pennsylvania, for- several years past ney in the Patent Department of the Westing- house Electric and Manufacturing Co." Our hats off to you, Bill! W7e, the members of Westinghouse Tech Alumni, congratulate you. May your further progress in this your chosen held continue steadily, to the confounding of all those the prac- competi- Court of an attor- f who walk not in the path of straight business prac- Q tices. i l You are now realizing on your investment of hard work and applicationg a sound investment with sure dividends. Four years at VVestinghouse Techg three at Duquesne University-on the job here at East Pittsburgh every dayg every night at your law books. XfVe of the Night School Alumni realize full well the price you had to pay, and we are happy with you and for you as we read the above announcement of this your most recent touchdown. Not only for that achievement, but also as con- veying our appreciation of your never-failing in- terest in the welfare of the students and alumni of VVestiiighouse Tech, we pass on to you at this time our congratulations and best wishes.

His dream of a college de- gree was now in sight, but there was plenty of rough sledding yet to come. He proved to be in earnest and for four years he continued his good record started at Casino Tech. In 1923 his dream came true and he graduated from Carnegie Tech with an enviable record. He- immediately returned to VVestinghouse to take up the Graduate Student course. At the end of this course, he entered the Railway Equipment En- gineering Department. Shortly after entering this department he was loaned to the N.Y. N.H. Sz H. R.R. and there for six months he was busy getting some actual experience in the field of his choice. As all good Westinghouse Tech Alumni should -he takes an active part in the religious and civic developments of the community in which he lives. He has just recently started on another educa- tional course. Having taken unto himself a wife, we predict that he will hnd he has just begun "learning" and we hold out to him no hopes for a "graduation" nor "degree" in this field.

It was liere in the Senate House that Cicero delivered those renowned speeches which over threw Catilineg and here Brutus made his de- fense after the death of Caesar. It was here also that Mark Antony swayed the passions of the mob to vengeance and violence. X'Vhat is that you say? You wanted the history of our Forum. Ah! I pray you forgive me. One's mind is apt to wander a little when one is growing old. Yes, of course, I will tell you of our Forum. It began the second week in December, Nineteen Hundred Twenty-tive. Like most big things it had but a small beginning, eleven members all told. Now we have over thirty members. XVe had an election of officers, President. Miss Pierceg Secretary, Miss Lauthg Chairman of the Programme Committee, Miss Mary Martin, Reporter, Miss Cecelia Martin. Our meetings are good and well worth attending, but every meeting is a little better than the preceding one, and so we go on and on. Last month we had our first special, which I am sure was a huge success. N'Ve hope to be able to put on a "special" once a month. Of course, this month hnishes school until September, but I hope to see many of our members return, bringing with them at least one new member, and so make our Forum worthy of its name. I sin- cerely trust that next September still finds us under the supervision of that worthy sire, Mr. Gillam. There that is all I can say at present for time is limited, and I am not good at telling things Cespecially liesj. Besides, I hate to bore. Thus closes the History of the Forum, both ancient and new. Cecilia Martin, Reporter of Girls' Forum. - AN ODYSSEY OF A FLIVVER By Stanley Gaines Listen my children, and you shall hear Of a wonderful ride, filled with fear How, from Greensburg town in the early dawn NVhen the dew was glistening on every lawn The chariot awoke, with snorts and roars That brought the neighbors to their doors They're off, they're off, they're on their way And East Pittsburgh but twenty miles away. On thru the dawn with shiver and shake The countryside thought there was an earthquake. They coast bravely down to the foot of the hill Oh, if they could the tank with Elixir lill! The flivver groans, and squeaks and dies. Oh try it in low, poor Edna cries Gritting her teeth, Allene shifts the gear Slowly the crest of the hill they near, They rattle and shake, the minutes pass, I think we'll stop and fill up with gas She snorts and stops, the radiator aboil I am afraid she has run out of oil. It is in .Iacktown she takes the last leap And all the inhabitants are fast asleep. The minutes seem like hours as they pass VVhile impatiently waiting for water, oil and gas. At last a rustic swain appears "And what can I do for you my dears" Water, Oil and Cas let us quickly away We'xfe wasted now at least half a dav. IVith renewed vigor, she shakes onceimore With her passengers sore as sore. Cheer up, cheer up, we'll not give up the fray, XVith East Pittsburgh but hfteen miles away. Some Irwin streets come to their sight Hurrah, Hurrah, we won half our fight Fifteen miles per hour is the limit by law, The old can couldn't.do better the best day she ever saw. Says Edna, "stop and let us eat". Allene says "I'm stepping on with both feetm. On we'll go if it takes all day And East Pittsburgh only ten miles away. Up the hill and down the dale Is the sad story of this tale. They rush down the hills with flying oil, They crawl up the other side with toil. Says Edna, "give her the gas, we now are late". Allene replies, "This is the best I can get out of the old skate". At last East McKeesport comes into view, Hurrah, Hurrah, only Eve more miles to do. As they go down the Ice Plant Hill, They totally eclipse famous Jack and ill At last, at last, here's Turtle Creek "Good Lord, what is that awful squeak They are now a half hour late, 'What a way to keep a date They stop at the door, the engine grovis eo d The 0fl5'SSl'Y'S flfllw mv tale is told 'Q J , i ,u , 1 , 1 v , .aa Wjfsrfz- ' its THE TECH ovvL M W HM At Your Instant Command Is the dependable electric and gas service furnished by the DUQUESNE LIGHT COMPANY a EQUITABLE GAS COMPANY Live in and Expand your Business in Greater Pittsburgh if ' if 'I ' .T V, f I. +g54,,,,,,,,,., .f-I f THE TECH OWL GIFTS THAT LAST Watches Diamonds Jewelry Fountain Pens FRANK A.

Compiled by William Nesbit. The rapid expansion in the use of Electricity necessitates a tremendous amount of arith- metical labor in connection with the solution of projected transmission and distribution cir- cuits. This demandsimuch valuable time and energy of the engineer and in the education of young engineers in our technical schools. lt is largely to assist these by making their work easier and less liable to error and by providing them with all the necessary tools that the data in this book has been compiled. From time to time, there have been pub- lished many articles, each of which pertains to some particular method of solution of trans- mission circuit problems. This book consti- tutes a review of each oi numerous methods previously proposed by various authors with examples illustrating each method. The accu- racy which may be expected by the use of each method is explained. Thus the user is given a choice oi methods ranging from the most simplified graphical forms of solutions to com- plete mathematical solutions. The user is provided numerous and exten- sive tables of circuits and other constants which make it unnecessary for him to l0S9 time or risk mistakes in calculating conSt21H'fS for each case in question.

He caught on the baseball team. When Cincinnati won at football, he cele- brated with the rest. For a year he super- vised the student cooperative bookshop. He was president of the Engineering Tribunal, the student governing body. In a word, he did the things well, that college students everywhere like to do. But of the specialization which he was to undertake at Westinghouse-there wasn't a clue. The case of W. E. Thau is another example of unforeseen opportunities afforded by such an organization to a man with a healthy aptitude for getting things done. After the usual training given college men, he entered the General Engineering Department. Later he became Engineer in Charge of the Marine Section, handling 311 marine and government application jobs.

Ofall the Diesel- electric marine installations in the world today--70 per cent are Westinghouse. Than and his associates determine how practical is each application proposed. They diagnose each customer's needs. They prescribe the right Westinghouse equipment. For instance, when the Government sent word: "Electrify the battleships Tennessee and Colorado," the Marine Section was on the job to install turbine electric drives, which helped to make these warcraft the most powerful units in the National Defense. Or the Clyde Steamship Line says: "We want to load these lumber-cargo carriers electrically. How can we do it? What will it cost?" Thau must ligure to a line point the exact requirements. Thus does the Westinghouse application engineer combine commercial and engineer- ing sense to advance the interests of the customer being served.
